  1. Hiya, hope your good, some advice please. I bred my Orchid and she laid her ooth but her abdomen looked rather bloody and sore, after a few days she was so weak she was hardly moving and wouldnt eat anything. After about a week she died.I mated my first Hierodula and shes fine, ooth expected in about 5 days. I used the same male with another and she ate a Morio worm while he was doing his thing, when I went back in shed finished eating and was very restless with the male still on her so I threw another one down which she devoured, same thing, shed finished and was restless... Ride em cowboy.. she was walking round with him mounted so I gave her another. after that I tried to seperate the pair but he didnt want to part so I left them. in the morning he was nowhere to be seen but I found him above the curtains. Now shes hardly moving and looks ready to burst at this point Im not sure if she will make it. Question.. have I over fed her or am I doing something wrong here??? thanks

  10. Nymphs are coming out quite rapidly now after several early birds, First mistake Ive made, the mesh Ive used on my pots is too wide and wont keep the very small flies in DOH!,  still it keeps the mantis in so could be worse. Watching the nymphs hang down is a beautiful thing to observe. still struggling getting the heat up which is annoying... AGAIN. with 5 small heaters on, i might just have to buy an oil heater and have it on all the time its getting down to freezing here again in the UK which I find annoying. I will have to re decorate my spare room. Ive had a damp problem on one wall and ive had to clean mould off it recently. Its made it worse with the temperature and the misting with the creatures and so I will have to address the problem. Ive been living in a fish tank. Still, it will be nice when ive done it,   thanks gang Ill keep you updated!

  11. Glory Glory Hallelujah!  
    Hierodula Malay Blue nymphs hatching.   Woop Woop!
